Valtrex is a pharmaceutical drug used to slow the growth and spread of herpes. It aids the body in fighting off the herpes infection. However, it does not cure herpes, but it can lessen the symptoms. Discover how you can prevent herpes and heal lesions using a natural and very safe product instead!

Valtrex is used to fight of infections in children and adults:

  • Genital herpes
  • Cold sores (must be at least 12 years old to take Valtrex)
  • Shingles
  • Chickenpox (must be at least 2 years old to take Valtrex)

Precautions: Those who should avoid Valtrex include those with:

  • HIV/AIDS
  • Weak Immune System
  • Kidney Disease
  • On Dialysis
  • Kidney Transplant
  • Bone Marrow Transplant
  • On other medications that can affect the kidneys
  • Allergies to valacyclovir or acyclovir (Zovirax).
  • Pregnant? Category B: you must decide if the risk of the medication outweighs the possible infection to baby during childbirth. It is very important to prevent herpes lesions while pregnant.
  • Breastfeeding? Valtrex passes into the breast milk and can harm the baby.
  • Older adults may be more likely to suffer from side effects.

Treatment is dependent on timing!

  • Start as soon as possible after the first appearance of symptoms (tingling, burning, blisters)
  • Valtrex does not prevent spread of disease!

Serious Side Effects of Valtrex include:

  • Fever
  • Easy Bruising
  • Easy Bleeding
  • Red Spots on the skin (not herpes or chickenpox)
  • Bloody diarrhea
  • Vomiting
  • Pale or yellowed skin
  • Weakness
  • Fainting
  • Urinating less often or not at all

Is there a safer alternative? Yes!

Ganoderma lucidum is nature's way of healing the body. Reishi mushroom is a natural adaptogen. The properties in this "Miracle Mushroom" include "virus killers" along with a plethora of other healing properties and natural chemicals that enhance the immune system! It contains:

  • Vitamins
  • Dietary Fiber
  • Minerals
  • Protein
  • Sugars
  • Lipids
  • Polysaccharides
  • Antioxidants
  • Essential oils (triterpenes)
  • Sterols (anti-inflammatory compounds)
  • Enzymes (anti-viral, anti-bacterial, proteolytic)
  • Is it safe? Yes!

To be labeled an adaptogen, herbs must be considered safe, with no side effects, and can do what it says it does!

Ganoderma lucidum has been classified as an adaptogen!

2, 000 peer-reviewed studies attest to it's power!

Pub Med alone has done several studies on Ganoderma. One study revealed that a mixture of Ganoderma and Panax ginseng given to five patients suffering from shingles were relieved of pain within days of starting this regimen. Not one patient developed post-herpetic neuralgia after a one year follow-up!

Can anyone take it?

Yes, Generally speaking-

  1. If you have a mushroom allergy, you may want to avoid. However, some have taken it with no ill effects.
  2. If you are pregnant, consult with your doctor. There are women who have taken it while pregnant and report great pregnancies! The general rule is: don't start if you have not taken it before.
  3. If you are nursing, same thing: women have reported better milk production, happier babies , but again, be sure to consult with your Health Care Provider. Some parents have mixed it in with forumula for those who can't breastfeed.
  4. If you are on coumadin/warfarin be aware that it can affect your numbers. You need to keep up with your INR's frequently. Consult with your health care provider. It acts as a "blood thinner". Just as you are warned to watch your numbers closely when you eat green leafy veggies, the same principle applies.
  5. Blood Pressure medications: Ganoderma is an adaptogen and it "corrects" the blood pressure. Keep a close eye on your numbers.
  6. Diabetics: many people have come off their medications (Metformin, insulin) due to the ability of the herb to regulate blood sugars and insulin levels. It has been documented to bring healing to organs such as the pancreas. Again, keep a close eye on your numbers and consult with your provider.
  7. Caffeine sensitivities: the coffee products contain caffeine, however most of those who have tried it can tolerate the coffee quite well. No caffeine jitters as the ganoderma "mellows" the stimulant. Red tea with Ganoderma and Cordyceps are naturally caffeine free. The Ganoderma coffee with Panax Ginseng also has an amazing ability to provide energy without the heart palpatations of regular coffee.

Reishi Mushroom comes in a variety of ways:

  • Taken alone, the herb is very strong tasting.
  • Incorporating this "Power Herb" into beverages and other products hides the taste of the herb
  • A variety of products makes for an easy way to take this "natural medicine" that can prevent herpes outbreaks from happening in the first place!
  • We've all heard the, "Eat an apple a day....." saying. Keep eating that apple, but now you can have that hot cup of coffee you've been missing once again!
  • Coffees, Teas, Hot Chocolate, Foods, Nutraceuticals, Lotion, Soap, and Toothpaste!

By simply switching your everyday products for a healthier version, you will be amazed at how easy your health can dramatically improve! It's truly that simple! Wow!
